at this kenyan bornnnnnnn >>> women helped him prevail, and yet he favored white and male. president obama, if that's his real name, has nominated a bunch of men to serve in top national security positions including head of the cia, secretary of state and secretary of defense. and not helping matters he picked women to be secretary of vacuuming and secretary of doing the dishes. >> what? >> the washington post said supporters are irked by the shortage of ladies in prominent jobs especially after making women's issues a big part of his campaign. look at him smile mocking them. to me it is massage nighs to put women in cabinet. that's just me. discuss, shall we? >> lightning rooooouuuunnndd. lightning round. >> on a scale of one to impeachment, how much do you care if he doesn't choose any women? >> i look at the track record. you have desiree rogers who was employed by the president. she was the social sectd. >> that was a guy? >> she was a woman. then ha rie benghazi thing. then you have secretary of state hillary clinton which both sides of the political aisle have been pleased with her
women. i think the message has probably been received by the obama white house. i think at the end of the day, it's always good to have more women in the room. i suspect they will. >> and, al hunt, one of the other strains of criticism is that the president -- and i guess you want people who agree with you for the most part but the president is choosing from a relatively small pool. pretty interesting that the president, the vice president, the secretary of defense designee and the secretary of state designee all served together on the senate foreign relations committee. >> he turned upside down that concept four years ago. i think the people who he picked are very capable but let me take the economic team for a second. i think jack lew is an enormously capable person as are other people but you know something, george, these people are tired. they are exhausted. they have been through one battle after another. when you talk about hillary clinton being spent, being exhausted so are these people and they're not bringing in any infusion of new people with new ideas. not necessarily re
and it at no cost. the image of wom democrats' convention was that women were utterly helpless unless the government stepped in and provided birth control and abortions that perception was furthered by the absurd political ad of the obama campaign about a woman named julia who from cradle to grave depended on good old uncle sugar for everything from education, a job, healthcare, food, housing, and retirement. now, the women in my family and the women i know and work with, well, frankly, they are as good as any of the men that i know and work with i never thought of them as being helpless and unable to function without someone from the government or some man sheparding them through life. silly me. it just never occurred to me that i needed to see women as helpless. i guess that's why the liberals went stark rating linda blair with her head spinning circles and pea soup enraged at me. i'm not the one that you ought to be mad at. i was just saying what some of your heros have said. you see, if women aren't getting much more than birth control pills and abortion from this administration, sure not my fau

women, but if you insist, i'll talk about hagel. look, i think he's a very well respected senator. the point about it is, i think implicit in what was just referred to, obama is very comfortable with him. the major appointments are people he's very comfortable with and knows well personally, and i think that's the kind of person he wants to surround himself for his second term. >> now, you know netanyahu. this is not privileged information, but what conclusions would you draw from a hagel nomination? netanyahu might conclude the u.s. is not serious about keeping open the option of a pre-emptive strike. do you hear me on that? >> i think netanyahu knows exactly what his problems are in that part of the world, and he will do his best to deal with them without going to war. doesn't mean he has an easy hand to play but he also is going to have to deal with this administration which probably is not the most friendly administration to the israelis that he's had to deal with, but that's his challenge. he's got to find a way to deal with both the critical threats that israel is facing, an
